The Key to Peace
One of Swami Satchidananda’s greatest, compact works, The Key to Peace shows clearly that peace is what really matters in life and explains how to be in that peace always by not disturbing our real nature. When our supreme inner peace is undisturbed, we are automatically in joy, in love, in light. It inspires us to lead a life of balance, contentment, above likes and dislikes-a life where everything comes to you. Topics include the forbidden fruit, selflessness, use but don’t possess, be always happy, the greatest mantra, just keep giving, real service, joy is your reward, God’s business, love to serve. If you call it a spiritual practice or service or Karma Yoga, it should give you the maximum joy. If it doesn’t, it’s just a selfish act.
In simple words, Yoga means keeping the mind calm and clear to reflect the peace and joy that is within you as your True Self. Whatever helps you maintain that peace can be called Yoga. In other words, any action that will not disturb your mind is a yogic action. A contented mind is alway balanced, always peaceful, above likes and dislikes. Then, everything comes to you.~Swami Satchidananda
